N igerians may heave a sigh of relieve soon as state governors under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) will, tomorrow, decide on the contentious fuel price, when they hold their 28th teleconference meeting.
A statement issued by the Head, Media and Public Affairs of the NGF secretariat, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, said the state chief executives will be briefed by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el- Rufai-led committee on “subsidy on PMS before any decisions on the supply and or retailing of the product is taken.”
The statement further added that the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa-led governors’ committee that interfaced with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, will brief his colleagues on the situation with the vaccines roll out and their attendant encumbrances.
According to the statement, the governors will be given update on the meeting between the NGF Chairman and the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of state universities. The pro-chancellors had met Ekiti State Governor and Chairman of the NGF,
Dr. Kayode Fayemi, last week and presented a number of requests which they believed would improve education at the sub-national level. The pro-chancellors argued that: “The governors will also listen to the activities of the Nigeria Governors’ Spouses Forum to hear how their wives fared last week when they engaged the country at
tending several activities that marked the International Women’s Day on March 8. “The meeting will also play host to three external presentations top of which will be made by the newly minted National Drug Law Enforcement Boss, General Buba Marwa. “
The DFID will be making a presentation on the NNPC Audit reports and what the states should know while the last presentation, which is by no means the least, will be speaking to tirade facilitation in Nigeria through e-Customs and a PPP structure in partnership with the British High Commission.”
